Karabakh: Baku can't involve Lebanese Armenians in political speculations

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday, September 16 that Azerbaijan's turning of victims of the Beirut catastrophe into a target of attacks and a subject of political speculations is unacceptable.

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry has recently submitted a complaint to the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, attempting to present the moving of several Lebanese Armenian families to Karabakh as a violation of the norms of the international humanitarian law.

"Responding to humanitarian disasters is the collective responsibility of the entire international community, part of which is the Republic of Artsakh, regardless of its temporarily unrecognized political status," the Karabakh Foreign Ministry said.

"By sending humanitarian assistance to Lebanon and providing shelter to those who have lost their homes as a result of the devastating explosion in Beirut, official Stepanakert makes its feasible contribution to the common efforts of the international community to implement humanitarian ideals."

The Foreign Ministry added that Artsakh will continue to provide assistance to all Armenians who have found themselves in a difficult situation in their places of residence.
